I highly recommend trying the tasting menu. We ordered the Small & Large plate tasting. All of the small plates were wonderful. We had the Beet & Radish salad, chilled pea soup, Flank steak salad, and a homemade pasta dish that was to die for. The one disappointment was the salmon large plate, which lacked seasoning and flavor. Both desserts... More

Innovative and creative dishes from local ingredients, We had three small plates and dessert and everything was delicious and different. The carrots cooked three ways and the beet salad were both excellent and the berry pudding for dessert was outstanding. The small plates are best if you are not looking for large portions since they are like slightly larger tapas.... More

A near annual visit from Seattle to come visit Park Kitchen and they once again didn't let us down. We share plates that run the gamut. The Salt roasted beet salad was delicious and well-balanced, the lamb sausage smoky and good, the fava bean salad also nice. And the beef coppa with red win onions and tongue bacon was fantastic...

If you find ordering at restaurants too easy then Park Kitchen is the place for you! Park Kitchen is a tapas hybrid. A conventional tapas restaurant conveys to patrons the number of tapas necessary to make a full meal. At Park Kitchen the conventional tapas process is devolved so that patrons can enjoy not knowing if they will leave the... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were looking forward to eating at this Portland restaurant. Service was good. We each ordered a "large plate" of the beef short ribs. We enjoyed it, but for the price ($36 each) we both felt we should have received a larger portion. We're guessing that the dish contained less than 8 ounces of... More

Wonderful farm fresh food, very innovative preparation. We chose the restaurant for the menu and because we could sit outside with our dog. We were not disappointed. We shared the small and large plate tasting menu with an additional side of artisan bread. It was more than enough for both of us and everything was delicious. The staff was very... More

This was truly what you would expect from a farm to table restaurant. My husband and I decided to leave the decision of what we would enjoy for dinner up to the chef through the small plate and small and large plate tasting menu. Almost everything was out of this world. We only had one plate we did not enjoy... More

We stopped for appetizers and had the best Oregon food! Newport Bay shrimp, Tillamook carrots, fresh radish and snap pea salad, flank steak and blue cheese salad. We got the royal treatment from server Faith! Couldn't be better than this!

Firstly, I don't think of myself as a foodie. I can't. I have too limited a palette. I don't do mushrooms. I can't do shellfish. I rarely do meat. I'm off of gluten, but Portland is a great food city for people like me, because there is a lot of respect shown for locally and seasonally sourced fruit, vegetables, dairy,... More

The restaurant is small so make sure you make a reservation. We had several small plates and most were excellent. The best in my opinion was the handkerchief pasta with pork shoulder. OMG..I could probably eat that every day and I'd be a happy girl. We got a carafe of their sustainable red wine which was really good too. It's... More
